Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is up to 40% faster than the RTX 3070 Ti in 3DMark
At this point, it is abundantly clear that the "unlaunched" GeForce RTX 4080 12 GB will be launched as the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti at CES 2023, thanks to multiple retailer listings and Nvidia itself. A recent Geekbench listing gave us a rough idea about the graphics card's performance and confirmed pre-launch rumours about it taking on the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. Some new data more or less confirms the said speculation and place the card between the GeForce RTX 3090 and its Ti-branded sibling.
Videocardz managed to get its hands on a whole set of 3DMark scores for the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. It includes Speed Way (5,497), Port Royal (14,457), TimeSpy 1440p (23,367), TimeSpy Extreme 4K (11,258), FireStrike Extreme 1440p (27,721), and FireStrike Ultra 4K (13,698), confirming an up to 40% performance uplift over Ampere. While the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti doesn't match up to Team Red's offerings (Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT), it should, on paper, offer superior raytracing performance in games to make up for some of the deficit in rasterization.
One can't deny that the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is a powerful graphics card due to it performing on par with a US$1,500+ flagship. However, its rumoured US$799 MSRP makes it a tad unaffordable, especially for an xx70 class graphics card. The lack of a Founders Edition makes it worse because AIBs will have no qualms about charging up to US$1,000 for a tricked-out version. This will force gamers to look at more affordable Ampere/RDNA2-based alternatives or wait for GeForce RTX 4070, 4060 Ti and other mid-range graphics cards.
